The Brooklyn Nets have been sliding as of late and it appeared a trip to Milwaukee could help get them back on track.
But they'll have to do it without point guard Deron Williams, who has been ruled out with a bruised right wrist.
The Bucks are quietly 14-12 and the Nets could be in for a long night without Williams. The Nets have won just three of their last 12, falling to a disappointing 14-13.
Williams, 28, is averaging 16.6 points and 8.0 assists per game this season.
